DJI and Hasselblad team up for a souped up photography drone


The drone takes DJI's M600 platform as a base and implements Hasselblad's A5D aerial camera for an impressive device that can be used for some excellent imaging services. It comes packing an adapted 50mm f/3.5 lens preset at infinity focus that should make focusing while controlling the drone a breeze, making this type of drone a no-brainer for event coverage or whichever use you need it for when it comes to capturing footage from the sky. The sensors, Hasselblad notes, are twice the size of those used in the best 35mm DSLR cameras on the market right now. If you're looking for a collaboration of the best of both worlds, the A5D-M600 drone is probably going to be your best bet.

The news comes from TechCrunch and photography website Luminous Landscape, both claiming inside sources have confirmed the as-yet unannounced deal. Details are beyond sketchy, since neither company has spoken to journalists to confirm or deny the transaction so far. The story, as Luminous Landscape tells it, is that Hasselblad was finally coming out of its death slide with the launch of the new X1D mirrorless compact camera. But producing the device was too costly for the cash-strapped business, and the venture firm that bought it in 2011 was unwilling to put in more capital.
